Anon here again. Its just a comment (I couldn't find any hardcore source material, but I'll provide a link to where it came from at least).
"Normally your body is paralysed when you sleep by the peribrachial area of the brain. It's largely the effect of one neurotransmitter (Acetylcholine). This has a pathway to the back of the brain stem where there are two little lumpy things called superior colliculi. These are the things that allow you to track your vision while you're awake. It's also the cause of REM (rapid eye movement) while you sleep because they're going on overdrive and your eyes are tracking constantly.
Sometimes the brain doesn't do what it's supposed to and you either remain paralysed for a short period while awake or, in your case, aren't fully paralysed while asleep. It's quite common and is the reason people often feel they're running through treacle in dreams." isitnormal.com/story/is-it-normal-im-weak-in-my-dreams-137441/

As I understand it, when we sleep, our bodies release a chemical that keeps us from moving in our sleep, effectively paralyzing us. When we dream, our brains have a hard time translating the motion since it thinks it should be paralyzed, so you feel weak and slow. My info is a little dated and I don't remember it exactly, but I'll go and try to find source for you.
