Charlie Sheen: Hiatal hernia pain sent him to the hospital

Charlie Sheen hospitalized abdominal pain Charlie Sheen, what are we going to do with you? Sheen, who was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center on Thursday morning with abdominal pain, is spending yet another night in yet another hospital.

No "adverse allergic reaction" this time -- sources told TMZ the "Two and a Half Men" star was treated for intense abdominal pain stemming from a hiatal hernia.

With a hiatal hernia, part of the stomach bulges through the diaphragm. No symptoms, no problem, but when a person does have symptoms, well, imagine having a blow torch nailing your esophagus where it connects to your stomach -- think "reflux," but think it in capital letters. (Ask us how we know.)

To mitigate symptoms, doctors recommend that people such as Sheen or the Ministry, who are aware they have a hiatal hernia, take care to avoid alcohol, caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, fatty foods, chocolate, mint and alcohol.

Coincidentally, Sheen's trip to the ER, first reported by TMZ, came after a night of heavy partying at the actor's house, neighbors told the website. The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to a 911 call at Sheen's gated community shortly after 6:30 a.m., Show Tracker confirmed. Two women reportedly left the house as paramedics took Sheen away.

One person reportedly at Sheen's pad -- 22-year-old porn actress Kacey Jordan -- might've been just the person to help the actor with another technique for reducing the pain: Doctors suggest keeping the patient's head raised while in bed, perhaps with the aid of a foam wedge or other apparatus. Say, a briefcase.

Fortunately for Sheen, he's not missing work -- turns out "Two and a Half Men" has the week off. Not sure if he's in trouble with dad Martin Sheen, mom Janet Templeton or ex-wife Denise Richards, all of whom were spotted at Cedars.

Party time.

Feel better soon, Charlie! God bless you.

c.sheen is a hot headed spoiled bratt who seriously needs to grow up. he has it all in the palm of his hands and can't seem to handle it. i am afraid that someday soon we will hear of his overdose or a terrible drunk driving accident with his demise or him causing the demise of others.

Who are they kidding? I've had a hiatal hernia for years and there's daily medication you can take to avoid any problems, and if you do have a problem, the pain and/or discomfort is in the chest and esophagus - not the stomach.

ummmmmmm I don't get the joke/mocking.

LA times has really gone down.

Lucky sob...

Gotdamn u charlie..ur an idol. you arent goin out this n young and early. im here for u..just pleeeeaaasssee....take it easy on them....broads!..hahahaha

Damn Charlie.. You are looking old, dude. Way before I turned your age, I slowed down on my partying. You should forget the drugs and act your age before it kills you.

"unidentified woman" who made the early morning 911 call

...Is that what they call hookers these days and did she charge extra?

His kids will probably follow in his footsteps. He is so immature to not see what he is doing to his kids.

Will someone please tell Warner Bros. to stop putting that show on hiatus!

I hope he gets alright. I love his tv show,he is so funny

Possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. What ever happened to laws?

Sounds like Charlie fell off the bridge, its mainly a white problem cause a brother don`t play that stuff.

hiatal hernia is no fun
especially if you havent had the problem prior to
and yes it can affect your abdomen,the acid can go back down into you intestinal track and cause you severe stomach cramps
been there done that, get some meds charlie and feel better

Poor Charlie. He is like watching a train wreck. You just can't help but look. Will probably end up like Anna Nicole. Remember her?

Are porn girls funny enough to send you laughing all the way to the ER? NOT.

I like to live the irresponsible lifestyle like Sheen. I have had a bout with a hiatial hernia that landed me in the ER. It feels like you would think a heart attack feels like because the nerves that causes the pain are the same ones that make you feel the pain of a heart attack. The Dr's will run an EKG immediately to make sure that you are NOT having a heart attack. The Hiatial Hernia was caused in my case by excessive vomiting due to my alcohol abuse. It's scary enough to make you want to grow up.............at least a little. I still like to drink, but not as much and i take prilosec and tums which help prevent/alleviate the symptoms. I'm not defending Sheen, but I'll bet he was sufficiently scared to at least try to take better care of himself. I never have enough money for high end "hookers" though, Dammit. ;) That action could cause a different kind of hernia.
