Dancing with the Stars two-time champ Cheryl Burke has been cleared by doctors to dance.

The 22-year-old Burke suffered from severe abdominal pain on Tuesday night, the first night of the DWTS tour. She was rushed to a Seattle hospital, treated and released. She was examined by her personal San Francisco physician as well.

The mystery illness caused Burke to sit out two shows–Tuesday in Seattle and tonight in Sacramento.

Dancing‘s tour spokesperson tells PEOPLE today that Burke “is not suffering from appendicitis and has been cleared to rejoin the tour on Friday, December 21 (in San Jose).”

This is the third consecutive tour for Burke, who is dancing on the road with her season two partner Drew Lachey. –Monica Rizzo
