If I were you, I would go for MTX first. My doctor wanted me to go on Tysabri as well, but I refused and insisted that I go on Humira. If the MTX doesn't work... I would give Tysabri a go before the alternative. I read that the measured risk for PML is less much less than the 0.1% they give and those who get it are usually on it for about
a year and a half. Good luck getting this figured out.
