A day after he was rushed to the hospital for chest pains, Michal Lohan was on his way back to New York and told RadarOnline.com exclusively that his crisis has surprisingly brought him closer to ex-wife Dina.

As we exclusively reported Saturday night, Michael and Kate were in Massachusetts where Michael was scheduled to fight in a Celebrity Boxing Match.  After failing his pre-fight physical, Lohan began experiencing intense "pins and needles" in his left arm and EMTs decided to rush him to the hospital.  His blood pressure was measured at 170/124.

"I've got either a blood clot or a blockage," a weak-sounding Lohan said Sunday.  "They told me, 'This is a stroke waiting to happen'.  What's crazy is that the day before we left, I had my Nitro in the little pocket of my jeans and Kate was doing laundry and washed the jeans, and I lost it.  Thank God when this incident happened last night, there was a man standing nearby who had Nitro on him."

Michael also revealed that his medical emergency was no surprise.

"They wanted to put stents in my heart three years ago, but I never did anything about it," he said.  "Last night at the hospital they wanted to do it right there but my cardiologist in New York said is was too invasive.  I used to be on medication for this problem.  I never told anyone.  And then I stopped taking it, frankly because it made me gain weight and I'm such an a**h*** about being in shape and exercising."

Lohan says he's "not himself" right now and admits that while he is stable, he's still feeling pretty under the weather.  He says he plans to see his own doctor Monday.
