No worry: Small spiders are not dangerous, and are not poisonous.
Keep your eye on it . Monitor for infection.
Any sign of infection, see your doctor.

Maybe: If you can see where the spider bitch you are there's any reactions and I would recommend a video conference on telemedicine if there's no reaction at all within 24 hours usually with a little spider bite you don't have to see anybody. The brown recluse spider bite she was a tiny spider and can cause local serious problems

Not to worry: You should be fine. Sharp jabs are pretty common and are not suggestive of a "secondary" headache; that is one which is likely to cause mortality. Try taking magnesium oxide 250 mg at bedtime and these jabs should subside in a few days.
