Have you been feeding the tomato with anything? This sounds a bit like nitrogen toxicity, but it can be hard to say for certain without seeing the damage. I would offset this with a high phosphorus and potassium feed. This will counter the nitrogen, as well as provide what the plant needs to bloom.
