I'm experiencing leaf curle at the bottom of the plant and branch curl at the top. What's going on? What should I do?

I planted it in it's current container about 6 weeks ago(seedling from garden show). I buried it fairly deep putting another 4 inches under the soil. I use a miricle grow plant food once every two weeks. About a week ago I move it to a shaded location, because of the sun. It was getting about 7/8 hours of direct sun. I noticed the curl about three weeks ago, but thought it would grow out of it.

Tomatoes like a good amount of direct sun, 4 hours minimum. 6 hours would be better.
Extensive heat is something they do not like. Steady temperatures in the 90's would cause problems.
I fertilize mine twice, once 2 weeks after planting, and again when they first start to set fruit.

Perhaps stop fertilizing until it's grown out of this problem.

Is leaf curl a disease or just something that happens. Just my curiosity.

I don't believe it's a disease. Thus far I've reduce watering and moved it to a shady spot. I'll eliminate fertilizer as well. Hopefully it will self correct.
