When I am lying down my foot moves. What it means is like my whole foot will move up and down (if this makes sense) sometimes my hips too. I cannot remember when this started to happen but it only happens when I lie down.

You seem to be suffering from hyperkinetic movement disorders. Many people who suffer from mild or moderate PLMS (periodic limb movements during sleep) can successfully manage their condition without medication. People often report that relaxation exercises like yoga or meditation can help reduce their symptoms. Sometimes a hot bath or messaging one's legs before going to sleep will help with the movements as well. Try to have full body massage and if symptoms persist then visit any neurophysician. He will advise some tests and prescribe medications to you.
