In brief: Bite

How do you know you were bit? Did you see the thing that bit you? Are you sure it was a spider? Could it have been a tick? Either way, it could take weeks to months to feel better but i would be safe and see your primary care doctor who might want to do a little bit more searching for a cause.

In brief: See your doctor

It depends on the kind of spider that bit you.
Also the symptoms may have nothing to do with the bite but they just started near the same time. You should see your doctor.
