The big fat slugs that live in our leaf piles and compost heaps are the types that eat rotting vegetation and the garden would be in a mess without them - they help break down organic matter and add it to the soil. Another part of their diet is the smaller slugs - they're the ones that eat our seedlings etc, so I always leave the big slugs alone to get on with it.
Your garden will benefit so much from your compost and leaf mould which will outweigh any damage the slugs might cause.
Sorry you've got a headache - hope it's better soon - try drinking a pint of water - most headaches are caused by dehydration ... and don't worry about the slugs ... whatever we do it's an ongoing battle in almost every garden, so it's not worth worrying about it.
And if the glass of water doesn't help, try this ...
