Don't burp them, you'll lose all the CO2. Don't get in a fret. There was only a tiny amount of oxygen in that headspace, and maybe none if it was used by the yeast. Don't worry so much, all will be fine.

EDIT: Rock hard is good, that means yeast has produced carbon dioxide (and a little bit more alcohol) from sugar. Amber bottles help keep light from impacting the beer, but it's best to keep the bottles in the dark.

My god you sound pretty shaken yourself...

You are totally fine and no oxydation will happen just by shaking bottles

that's yeast. it'll settle out when it's done. give it time; the standard rule of thumb before bottles are fully carbed is 3 WEEKS.
