Brown spots on lower legs ??

I am 46 year old male.. I have worked out an exercised for 30 + years.. I have brown spots all over my lower leg down to my ankles that have been there for 5 years at least. I always contributed it to being in PC chair for hours on end at home.. I know when i sit for hours(4-5) sometimes i get up an lower legs are puffy but it goes away,so put 2 an 2 together. I have busy "day job" and walk a mile daily.Never have i have a single issue with legs,pain,skin etc...curious etc.

Could be a liver issue, too much sun, and sometimes synthetic hormones will cause brown spots in which case they will disappear after a while.  Taking tricyline will also cause brown spots.
