Brief Answer:
Rush to the emergency room.

Detailed Answer:

Thank you for posting your query.

I urge you to go to the hospital/ER right away, as some of the spider bites can be quite XXXXXXX

Particularly if the spider was a black widow spider. There are certain species of spiders in the United States which are venomous so please do go to the ER urgently.

The spider venom is mostly a neurotoxin, that means it can make it difficult to move and breath.

I hope you understand the urgency.

Wishing you all the very best and speedy recovery.
