Not having yokes leaves one with little options for remedy.
That being said I have to agree with Vic in that pics would help with sorting a remedy.
There can be a few issues that can be causing the problem. For me the biggest concern is cam damage and whether it is straight or not.
One of the cables could also have stretched and now uneven pressure is being applied across your limbs.
Also the fact this has happened slowly is giving warning signs something is about to go. The bearings inside the cam could also be collapsing.
If you have a press, undo the strings, take out the pins and inspect the cams and bearings properly.
Gaurdians remedy is correct to shim but if the bearing is collapsing it will only be temporary.
A full inspection is best IMO
