    It depends on the context. But it could mean something like
    "Please don't make me suffer by doing/telling me/ that"

    P.S. Not a native speaker

    Yes, I'd agree with that. Though "suffer" might be too strong of a word. Maybe "bore" would be a good word. Don't bore me by telling me.

    In any case, spare me, just don't spear me.
