Off the couch, down the road: Cheryl Akert used running to help with IBS
MILWAUKEE, WIS. (Sept 21, 2015) - Cheryl Akert used to have to put her head down on the table because her stomach was killing her. This was a problem because she was at work. And she worked at a day care.
She went through a CT scan and an MRI, endured scopes and a colonoscopy, and when they found inflammation, doctors told the 34-year-old she had IBS, or irritable bowel syndrome.
