I would take it to the doctor with me and ask what he thought.
I'm afraid I can't identify the spider, but better to check with a doctor
just in case.

Here is a good site to begin with:

They mention the following:

Are many spiders poisonous to humans?

No! Most are too small to bite through skin, venom not adapted to humans, too little venom, not in same place as humans. All bites have 2 fang marks.

In US, only four groups are poisonous. Black widow, brown recluse, hobo spider, yellow sac spider*.

Ewwwww. I hate spiders!

If this is the spider, please consider calling a exterinator out to get rid of them, they are poisonous.

I don't think it's a brown recluse...their legs are longer and skinnier relative to their body than your spider's legs, and I also don't see the distinctive markings that they have on your spider. Doesn't mean that yours isn't still poisonous, but I don't think it's a recluse.

I think it is a harmless jumping spider. The spray will probably do you much more harm than the spider will.

It could possibly be the Slater-eating Spider or Woodlice Spider (Dysdera crocata)
