Axon's diameter size and their speed

I know that the Axon with largest diameter is the fastest.

For the '' feeling the position of limbs in space'' this neuron and axon is used.

And the axon with a very small diameter, is very slow. when Twisting the ankle, this is the neuron that sends the signal.

Shouldn't it be opposite? Shouldn't I feel the pain in a second?
