Deion Sanders was hospitalized Sunday afternoon -- after landing at LAX and feeling a sharp pain in his gut ... TMZ has learned.

Prime needed immediate attention after arriving in Los Angeles -- and tells us he received assistance from two very helpful firefighters.

We're told the 46-year-old athlete is currently being checked out for kidney stones -- as well as possible appendix issues ... but still no firm answer on the cause.

Sanders couldn't have been in too much pain though ... since he had time to snap pics with the guys who helped him out.

Are you sure it's not for an inflated ego?

Kidney stone pain can start and stop. Just because he was feeling OK for the picture doesn't say anything about what he felt before. Been through it twice now, both times the pain had stopped before I got to the hospital, only to start back up again before the morphine took effect.

He had the nickname the"TOE" because everytime he'd bump it he was out for the game. Can't stand Romo, but he and Witten have more guts than this guy ever had.

Nice to see my buddies Rod and Roger from the LAFD helping out the passengers at LAX. My bf works for LAFD and used to be at the LAX fire station. I'm @dominiquebhpawn on Twitter and the LAFD is awesome...
