Say what you want, but unless another injury it's sounds every bit of improper drawing technique and possibly over bowed. I'm 70 old and shoot all day if I want. My bows are set to 51, 53 and 55 pounds. If I want I can set one back to original 62 pounds and shoot quite a bit. I might get tired, but I don't hurt. Figure in 2015 a accident separated my shoulder, tore my rotor cuff in 2 places, shredded one area and had 2 partial tears.
I guess that’s what 50 years of improper drawing does:set1_rolf2:.

It is damaged tissue where the breastbone and clavicle meet. The clavicle acts as a strut and moves a little when stressed, like drawing a bow. Although there is no way the doctor can say for sure what it was from shooting a bow a lot for many years, shooting often with other activities and exercise could be the cause.
It is getting better but rest and icing is what’s needed.
Over bowed and bad form shows up in rotator cuff injuries.
