Do I stay or do I go?

I habor a lot of guilt and mix feelings posing this question, but I feel compelled to nonetheless. My girlfriend and I will be together 2 years this July. I love her. I really do. She's beautiful and smart. We share many common interests and the sex is as good as it gets. The downside to our relationship is that she is chronically sick with gastrointestinal problems. Despite numerous visits to various medical personnel, a diagnoses and sucessful treatment remains illusive. I have been there for her as much as practicable, but her condition has been a "downer" for a lack of a better term. I don't see a light at the end of the tunnel, and I am concerned about her ability to carry children should we get married. I want a son someday. My question is: Do I continue to be in a relationship with her despite perpetual feelings of despair, or should I end things so that I can be with someone more healthy?
