Have dreams about feet glued to the ground, struggling to move, not sleep paralysis

In my dreams I cant move and have to drag myself along with my arms holding onto a fence for example to move along. I often have them - they are all different but I cant physically move as if my feet are glued to the ground and I struggle to move about. It is not sleep paralysis because it is not just as I am waking. It is within a dream.
