      Getting Extremely Tired/Weak in Dreams

      I wish I could know if this happens to anyone else, because I experience it very often. I had a dream once a few years ago where I was in class when the bell rang to go to the next period. I tried to pick up my books and leave, but I was so unbelievably physically tired and heavy that I couldn't even lift a finger without incredible strain, and I was starting to feel panic and frustration inside as I was just leaning down sideways against my desk like a limp, heavy doll, staring at the floor. It was like the power of gravity and my sleepy fatigue were both overwhelming. It was quite disturbing.

      I had a similar tired state in my dream last night, although not as intense as that one. I woke up pretty tired this morning, too, and had to strain to get out of bed.

      When it's not being too tired to do anything, it's being too weak to do anything with regular force. For example, sometimes in dreams I get really mad at someone and try to smack them with my hand, but it swings in slow motion, straining to even reach the destination of their face, and once I really really try to hit them, the most I can get is a soft, pathetic little slap that touches them. It's one of the most frustrating experiences ever.

      The night before last in a dream where I got really angry and lost my inhibitions, I tried to scream out as loud as I could, but my body closed up tightly and no matter how hard I tried, all I could get were some subdued, frail groans.


      What's wrong with me? Is there a meaning behind this? I've also experienced sleep paralysis a few times when I woke up, usually when I took naps and was more tired because of it. Maybe it has something to do with that. I also notice just as I'm typing this that there's a running theme of anger with my dreams. I do get regularly angry and irritated in real life lately, so....

      I experience similar fatigue, but not to the extent that you have been. Often times when I try to fight something or someone, I can never land punches at full force. Also, there are times when I am running that it seems as though I'm running through waist deep water. It's really weird!

      As for meaning, I don't think the fatigue would have a meaning to it because it's quite common in dreams for everyone. The anger on the other hand might have some meaning or symbolism.

      Yes I have experienced this exact thing. Dreams where I will be on the couch with friends just chilling, but I am so exhausted that I cannot even move a muscle, and if I do it's with extreme effort and only an inch or so. After which leaving me totally exhausted.

      Or I will have dreams where I will try and run, but like stated above it feels like my feet are made of concrete, or I am running through waist deep water.

      Also I do not if anyone has experienced this, but I will have dreams where I will run or move forward and a force pulls me back preventing me from advancing, very annoying.

      As for the causes of these I am not totally sure. I do know that the body falls asleep before your mind does at which point you would start to dream. Perhaps if your mind is aware of this fact it may subconsciously decrease your ability to function properly in the dream.

      It might also be that you are in a limbo of being on the verge of waking up into sleep paralysis however this is just a theory.

      Actually I may of just found the reason for the sluggish movement. During the stage of REM Atonia, it describes what your body acts like during this stage of sleep. Perhaps if you are dreaming while in this stage of sleep you act as your body is in real life here is a quote.

      One interpretation of the term sleep paralysis is as a natural phenomenon that is more properly called REM atonia.[1] When you fall asleep you first go into non-REM sleep stages. In these sleep stages the tone (tension) of your skeletal muscles is reduced, that is, you become physically relaxed. You can still move, even though movements may be sluggish. For example, you can turn around in your sleep.
