That's what it sounds like anyway - just a symptom of not having reached full lucidity, so while parts of your conscious are awake, the dream is still created by the subconscious self and you feel you have no real influence over it. It's also a lot easier to get lost in the dream again and lose lucidity altogether.
You need to find a way to increase your level of conscious awareness of the dream, one that works for you. What happens when you do dream stabilization techniques? ie thorough reality checking, rubbing your hands together, demanding more clarity, focusing on near objects. Does the dream intensity increase whatsoever?
Even though you may not have control at the start, if these actions are habitual on realizing you're dreaming, then your dream self just does them on instinct. (Which is why we don't need to be fully lucid to do a reality check in the first place, otherwise we'd be in a catch-22 situation.)
So, maybe these actions aren't coming naturally to you when you first realize you're dreaming? In which case, you need to practice these actions in your mind when doing MILD and visualizing becoming lucid, so the actions go hand-in-hand with any flash of lucidity.
