Hello dear,

As the investigations have ruled out the possibility of venous insufficiency, the dark spots can be attributed to hyper-pigmentation of skin secondary to hormonal imbalance, systemic causes like diabetes, or due to primary dermatological causes.
Investigations like complete blood count, estimation of bleeding & clotting time, blood sugar level & blood pressure & Thyroid profile will be helpful to rule out any pathological cause for the symptoms.

So, kindly consult your General Physician/Dermatologist & get a proper clinical examination done.
Take care.
