crawling on all fours

A common occurrence in my dream is the inability to run away from danger. I read through some of the dreams on your website and I understand now that this is due to “REM Paralysis.” However, every time I can’t run away I end up trying to run on all fours (using my legs and arms on the ground), like an animal. This has been happening for as long as I can remember. I was hoping you might have an idea as to my peculiar way of trying to run. If it helps any, I did not grow up admiring animals, or even owning a pet.
