Default Shoulder pain that hasn't gone away for a long time

Maybe 2 years ago I started to get pain in my right clavicle. At first I thought it was because of how I slept, so I started sleeping on my left shoulder instead, but it kept hurting. I eventually stopped doing bench press in fear that it was shoulder impingement.

I've tried doing light weight bench press a year later, but it started hurting again so I had to stop. In fact, I stopped using my mouse with the right arm now since it was contributing to it. I can't even really do overhead movements or chest movements without discomfort. I tried doing rows again recently, and I get pain in my right shoulder from those too.

Pull-ups feel pretty good, it's the only compound lift I really do with my arms. I mostly just do curls and cable tricep extensions now.

I've tried doing light external rotations and those went okay, except one time I overdid them and my shoulder hurt a lot worse for a while. I still do them sometimes, but it's not like I'm trying to improve my reps/weight because I'm careful now and I'm not making progress in any way on them.

I do reverse shrugs and I've improved my shoulder posture a bit, now they are not shrugged up. But my right shoulder still tends to come forward a lot of the time. When I flex my back muscles to pose in front of a mirror I can actually feel the shoulder go back, so it must not be in the correct position at all times.

Anything I can do to improve the situation? When I go to the gym I barely do anything at all now.

If I were you, I'd go get it scanned.

Update: I've been watching a lot of this guy's videos

I went to a PT for lower back pain (my insurance paid for it), but he was kind of an idiot. He told me my hamstrings were tight. They're not. My lower back is tight so my hamstrings are already stretched. I tested it myself, my hamstrings are flexible enough.
