Another data-point for the conflicting information database, sometimes inflammation is self-perpetuating (mainly in joints). The swelling from the inflammation irritates the muscle, causing more inflammation. So, if the pain doesn't go away, try an Advil.

In general, I agree. Inflammation is part of a natural process. A chance for you and your body to learn and adapt.
