20. I had one recently to test for sleep apnea
I'd fallen asleep at the wheel - thankfully it was a brief episode, and when I woke up it triggered a panic attack.

Turns out I don't have apnea, but mild narcolepsy. Doc assumed it was apnea cos I'm overweight & I snore, apparently. Thankfully, I live in the city & don't need to drive, but I am always tired as hell.
