without pics...would be hard to diagnose a problem...
Also the species of the plant would be helpful..
Sometimes tomato plants leaves will curl to conserve energy.
Feed your soil and your soil will feed you

Just a guess, but maybe too much fertilizer. If thats the case and the plant doesnt die it wiill look better in a couple weeks.
I'd rather be lucky than good
