In brief: See a specialist
The first thing to do is to make sure that you find the source of the lead so that you can stop the exposure.
Next you need to see a doctor that knows how to treat this kind of condition. It may just take watchful waiting or you may need to go through a treatment called chelation.

In brief: Investigate
First, investigate the environment and try to determine where th lead came from. If the poisoning is severe, IV medications (chelating agents) can help bring it down.
