Why do people get sleep paralysis? What happens to your body during that phase?

I have/get sleep paralysis. It is very scary.

The best way I can think to explain it is – your mind/brain wakes up and your eyes are open (you are awake and you know you are awake) but your physical body (arms, legs, etc.) are paralyzed and you can’t talk or anything either.

It is like the mind woke up but the body hasn’t woken up yet.

It freaks me out.
