What does a sharp pain/ice cold sensation on a leg with chronic venous insufficiency mean, that also gets worse upon touching?

In brief: Depends

Venous disease causes many diffeent symptoms.
If you have painful vv with palpation, this likely indicates ongoing inflammation related to too much pressure from valvular incompetence.

In brief: Swelling/ infection

There should not be any pain or discomfort unless you have a phlebitis or possibly an infection.
If uour leg is swillen that can also be painful however. You should seek the advice a vascular specialist that has a special interest in venous insufficiency.
