Bitten in my sleep... Identification PLEASE!

Hi I live in South Wales UK, I got woken up at 3am yesterday morning by being bitten by this Spider!


I suddenly fely sick, nauseous, had a headache and just generally felt unwell. I had to go to A&E, after calling NHS Direct and was advised to take Anti-histemines.  Nearly 20 hours later I still have a horrible numbing and tingling in my arm, which is now in my neck/face,iv slept all day and im still exhausted and having cold flushes. 


So I would really like to know if this little bugger is poisonous/rare/Toxic...??  I want to know WHAT it is.  Iv never been alergic to anything in my life, and I m not scared of spiders or insects at all... so its nothing to do with being in a panic.

The Doc did say iv had a  "systematic reaction".


If anyone could help that would be brilliant!!


Thank You! x


p.s... its the same spider but different pics, it was black with a slight cream pattern on its back.  It wasnt "big" but the bum was quite rounded and bulbous.
