Hi HaySam,
If your tomatoes are planted in the same spot as previous years, you may have nematodes. Also, tomatoes are subject to various blight. Pull up your state/county farm extention cooperative service on the internet. It has lots of info.
I plant a nematode resistant tomato but still will lose a few every year. Good luck.

Carefully dig one up to inspect the roots. I have seen root mites cause this, If you have root mites see your ag dealer. If you can't find any thing wrong to cause this maybe some Epsom salts may help bring them around. About a table spoon around each plant.

I had that happen one year - since i smoke, nearest i could tell, they got something from my hands cuz the stems dried up first. They're fussy about stuff like that.
