It may be muzzle blast, especially with a brake as opposed to a flash hider, but it might be the buffer bottoming out. Next time it's field stripped take a look at the rear of the buffer. May need either a new spring or a heavier buffer. For the 16" guns that have 4 different weights, running from unmarked at the lightest and H1,2 or 3 as they get heavier.

Try going in a completely different direction.

Move up to a mid-length or rifle length gas system and get away from the carbine length system.

That or add a gas block and settle that thing down a bit.

As old as this post is, I'm thinking you already dumped it anyway.

I didn't post on this because I've never had a recoil issue with .223/5/56mm.

The other night I was shooting and experience severe pain. I realized that I'd assumed a position where the rifle butt was squarely on my collar bone. There's no padding there and boy, that smarts.

OP, if you're still with us, you need to alter your shooting position/gun mount. The rifle butt needs to be on muscle tissue, not sensitive body parts.

The recoil on AR feels different for someone used to shooting AKs or hunting rifles. But it's also lighter. Just started shooting my AR.
I did feel some discomfort but I think it was purely psychological - an unfamiliar and weird to me "clung-clung" of the buffer.
