Charlie Sheen

And the REAL STORY is ....

Ear Infection

11/1/2012 10:37 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Charlie Sheen
-- contrary to the buzz that's going around H-Wood -- is NOT hospitalized for drug issues -- he's back on the set of "Anger Management" after battling a nasty ear infection.

Not to say Charlie isn't back to partying hard -- our sources say he's definitely doing that. But here's the deal with C.S. He flew Sam and Lola to NYC Saturday to spend some time with mama Denise Richards, then flew back the next day. That was just enough to trigger an ear infection, which benched Charlie from the set Tuesday.

Charlie is back to work today and at the time of this post he's doing a table read for his show.

BTW, Charlie has ear problems. Charlie had a really bad ear infection last year that was hard to shake.

That's what happens when you stick your ear where it shouldn't go.

My son had ear infections so bad that blood would come out of his ear. Never once did the doctor suggest hospitalization.

Did you see the guy who went as Charlie Sheen for Halloween? He was naked, except for a pair of sunglasses, and he had a bottle of booze and a cigarette! lol

Don't worry Charlie, it's probably nothing a good dose of penicillin won't cure. Or not.

I don't know what Sheen's deal is but I get bad ear infections and they can HURT like a mother. The Drs wouldn't put tubes in my ears because I didn't get the infections often enough. These days most Drs won't even put them in childrens ears. The tubes can cause other problems. Now come on haters start slamming me because I commented on ear infections.

Maybe he watched that Family Guy episode where they were having ear sex and he decided to try it out.

Nose & ear problems go along with a cocaine habit. Cocaine is a vasoconstrictor, it restricts the mucous membranes of the nose and sinuses. Coke addicts often have very bad chronic sinus infections, which untreated sinus infections can get into the ears or even bones around the ears. Cocaine is famous for the nose problems, some coke addicts literally have tissue in nose rotting away, that definitely leads to infection!

A lot of coke addicts always are using those nasal sprays. One way to spot someone with a coke habit.

Who's to say the ear infection isn't a result of snorting coke?
Ask any ear, nose, and throat Dr., it's possible.

Chuck Lorre is considered by everyone and especially his crew to be the most hated and biggest azz wipe producer in Hollywood. Charlie just called him on his crap and he didn't like it.

Inner ear infections are a real problem. Especially if they become resistant to antibotics. They just keep coming back and suba diving or cabin air pressure all seem to aggrevate the problem.
