what does it mean when your blood pressure is 105 over 73 and you're only 22 years old and pretty healthy?

Totally normal: It means you have a totally normal blood pressure- or at least you had at the moment it was taken. Our blood pressure changes moment to moment- if you take it 10 times a day you get 10 different readings, so a single reading may or may not be typical, but 105/73 is totally normal and no reason for concern.
