thickening on white (scelra) of eye

I am concerned about the white part of my right eye on the corner side of that eye. For a while now it appears that the area from the corner up to about a third of the way across to the pupil is thickened and a slightly different colour to the white of the eye. When I look away from the corner and pull my lower eyelid down it looks slightly raised/ thickened the whole way around the eye in this corner area. Also the last two days I have experienced sharp jabs in this eye in this area. Should I be concerned?
