What is relationship between blood lead levels & numbness, convulsions, headaches, fatigue and weight loss?

Is it high?: I'd be VERY concerned if my blood lead was above 15 ug/mL and think it might be contributing to this. If it was above 50, I'd bet money that it was the cause. I'd also continue the workup.
