Luff in the luff of main sail

I sail a J-22 and I've noticed that often when I'm sailing upwind, the main sail luff luffs, especially in heavy wind and I'm wondering what this is a result of. I've tried adding more backstay but the result is the same. Do I need to flatten the sail with more outhaul?
